, and they're screeching about how the polls are rigged. romney's people know they're in big trouble, right? down about ten in ohio. even the fox news poll shows romney losing in a lot of these swing states. they understand they're in trouble. do they believe they've got a chance to turn it around? >> they do and they do. they know they're in trouble and they -- you know, they have tried a little bit to play the polls or bias game in the last couple days. but pretty half-heartedly as far as i can see. you know, they argue that they're within the margin of error in ohio. a lot of people don't really understand how margin of error works. so you can be pretty far behind and still be within the margin of error because it applies to both candidates. when something says a 4.5% margin of error, they'd have to be nine points apart. they realize they are significantly down in ohio, they're significantly down in the swing states. they know that -- they think that governor romney, the ad yesterday, they were very happy with. they think it was very -- a very effective ad. they think that they're sharpe

obama was in a position to win that election. right now he's in a strong position. governor romney's campaign is clearly flailing, but there is still a lot of uncertainty underneath these numbers. i'm just being honest, because i think democrats need to keep that perspective. if governor romney does well in the debate -- i don't know he will, but if he does that's a turning point. there's an enormous amount of time left in the election. democrats and the bahama campaign dish democrats need to keep their eye on the ball. this election is not over contrary to what polls may say. >> absolutely. it is not over, which is why it's so fascinating so much time is spent on allegations that the polls are inaccurate as opposed to conversations lending help to the romney campaign if it can be helped at this point coming up with a list of loopholes to close. that's just one thing. let me bring to the conversation quinton kidd, he's a political science professor in virginia. thank you so much for your time. we have romney and obama in virginia right now. we have this segment called purple rain f

's bnaralyzed b tha neit appease the far right of the republican party. you have this now dilemma going into in the last 40 sore so days of the election. his message hast worked and he's come across because of this new video is cold and indifferent to the flight of hard-working people. so now he's trying to show an elm pathetic side that contradicts his earlier positionsnd statements. it's not a good place for any candidate at thi time of the eltion.

, the president, i think to do it again. how does the romney campaign respond to that? >> reporter: that's right. if president obama were to win the state of virginia because no democrat had won it since lyndon johnson in 1964, he would be the first democrat to do it twice in a generation. so obviously it is a big challenge for the president to try to win this critical battleground state one more time. that's why mitt romney is in the state today trying to take it away from him. this state, let's be honest about this, is very critical in terms of putting together the electoral map that the romney campaign needs to win this election. and it was no surprise to see both of these campaigns going back and forth over issues of national defense. mitt romney was here just about an hour ago talking about this and talking about those looming defense budget cuts that are coming as part of that fiscal cliff that we all have been talking about coming up at the end of the year. mitt romney said he would make sure that those cuts are not put into place where, if he becomes president, we'll reverse those cuts o

and anyone for mitt romney is a absolute republican but you mentioned th break in the race. iowa is one of the swing states broken in the president's favor right now by a few points and anything in the bank is value added but if the dynamic changes and you have more undecided voters out there what the obama campaign argues is they have time and resources to those people hard core supporters voted. the romney campaign would say that's an exaggeration and they say republicans are more traditional. they pour the resources at the end. this is a growing and an important national trend and it give your test run if you will to your organization on the ground. >> in iowa city for us mr. magic wall himself john king. thank you. >>> don't forget as we ment watch this first presidential debate in denver colorado. romney versus obama next wednesday 8:00 eastern right here cnn. >>> just in. news from space. we are just getting word of a pretty big discovery on mars. folks, it involves water. that's next. pass pass here's what happened... i was talking to my best friend. i tol

that governor romney switch that momentum as that voting continues wolf, 40 days right up to election day. >> everyone agrees, john, iowa very much in play right now, right? >> reporter: yes. it's one of the states -- we have nine states we call toss-ups. this is one of them. seven of those nine states allow some form of in person early voting. iowa is still in play, but iowa is one of those states that have drifted a bit in the president's favor. and, again, this is a state where republicans did very well in 2010. they believe they have some energy on the ground. but they've watched the last ten days, wolf, if you talk to them privately, they're not happy with the romney strategy. they're not happy with the romney advertisements. and they think first and foremost he must have a very, very strong debate on the question of which candidate can better handle the economy. they say he must do that in that first week of october to turn the tide here. >> all right. john will be joining us later in "the situation room" as well. thanks, john, very much. >>> today we learned the president plans a f

. we told you about the brand new poll showing that that man in swing state of ohio is amitt romney by 10 percent. but are they really swinging toward the president? or is there skewing going on by the left-based main stream med yampt a number of people on the right feel that there is something, a polster media polling bias and what they do, they sample more democrats than republicans and naturally the democrats will wind up with the vote. why will they do that? one perhaps to keep mitt romney's donors from coughing up more cash and keep people from doing early voting. >> gretchen: the idea is why do they weight it one way to the other. they base it on the turn out in the last election cycles. they see more democrats came to the polls they weight it to democrats as opposed to the republicans and defendants. >> steve: what about 2010 and the land slide with the republicans winning be you when mr. obama had a highly motivated base of young people and latinos? which model do you follow. >> brian: we'll listen to karl rove and then we'll talk. >> when news agencies like the cbs news rep

for things the country had done right. all that -- that is in a long tradition of presidents acknowledging past imperfections. these cannot by any normal dictionaries amount to apologies. either formal or informal. again, last month, when romney accepted his party's nomination, he repeated the assertion that obama had begun his presidency with an apology tour, and obama had confessed the u.s. had "dictated to other nations." that fact check story went into greater detail, pointing out that obama's trips to europe, latin america, to the muslim world during his first months in office, no indications were he had said the nation had made mistakes. in most of those cases, the context was a call for better relations with other countries after which he described as damage done by misguided moves by his predecessor, bush. so we fact check that. again, it did not seem to make a difference to the campaign. earlier this month, when that violence broke out at u.s. diplomatic outposts in libya and egypt. romney jumped to accuse obama of disgraceful handling of the situation, including sympathizing with
